Key Steps in a Frozen Water Pipe Repair Project
- Fixing the Pipe: The first priority when dealing with a frozen water pipe is to shut off the water. This will help minimize the damage that would otherwise occur as the pipe thaws. Of course, if you didn’t notice the pipe was frozen until it burst and developed a leak, you will already have water damage. The pros from AV Flooded House Restoration can track the leak to its source and provide the necessary pipe repair.
- Water Extraction & Drying: Next, we will help clean up any water that has escaped from your frozen pipe, using professional water extraction, air moving, and dehumidifying equipment. We can also use moisture detectors as needed to check for hidden pockets of moisture behind walls or beneath floors.
- Mold Prevention: Drying the area out promptly will go a long ways towards preventing mold problems. A good cleaning with a fungicidal solution will provide even better protection.
- Reconstruction: Once everything is clean and dry, we will set about repairing any materials that may have been damaged by the water leak.
Preventing Future Problems
If a pipe has frozen once, it could be at risk for a future freeze if you don’t take steps to protect it from the elements. At AV Flooded House Restoration, our reconstruction services can be extended to cover steps like adding insulation directly to walls, wrapping exposed pipes, and installing frost-proof spigots on exterior faucets.
